Add to bookmarks
The Sacred Heart of Jesus Sunday is a very special day in South Tyrol. On the third Sunday after Pentecost, open fires are lit on all of the major mountain ranges of the region. The tradition of lighting fires on the mountains goes back to pre-Christian times. Ritual fires were lit on hilltops and mountains especially at the time of the summer solstice. The Feast of the Sacred Heart is also celebrated at the end of June (on the 3rd Sunday after Whitsun) and the fire on the mountains gradually became renamed. In the morning traditional worships take place in Venosta villages (in German language), in this places with processions: 9 am Lasa 9 am Tanas, followed by the feast
